Belfast City Council has selected PageOne Communications’ Connect messaging solution to form a key part of its emergency communications strategy. From major flooding to severe weather conditions, fatal incidents and structural damage to buildings, Belfast City Council works with a number of different organisations to lead and co-ordinate emergency response.
David Neill, emergency co-ordination officer at Belfast City Council, said: “The environment we work in can often be high-pressured and fast-paced which means we needed a flexible, but resilient solution, to support our communications. We also needed a system that was user-friendly and cost effective.
“Following a competitive process, we chose PageOne’s Connect solution to deliver priority communications via SMS and email. Acquiring PageOne’s services through the UK Government’s Public Services Network (PSN) Framework Agreement gave us peace of mind that we were getting value for money.”
Connect, PageOne’s secure cloud-based messaging solution, offers a range of services that allows clients to communicate quickly and efficiently, all in real-time. The solution is easy to use and allows a large number of people to receive and send messages via PageOne’s robust platform.
Nigel Gray, director at PageOne Communications, said: “Our messaging technology is designed to provide clients with the resilience required for critical communications – this is why organisations such as Belfast City Council trust our technology to help keep their staff informed and use it to direct emergency response.”
